While the GCE ‘O’ Levels serve as a valuable intermediate benchmark for the majority of our pupils, those who are clearly university-bound can benefit from spending the last four years of their upper secondary/ JC education from Secondary Three to JC Two engaging in broader learning experiences. The Integrated Programmes (IP) will provide an integrated upper secondary and JC education where secondary school pupils can proceed to JC without taking the GCE ‘O’ Level Examinations. Schools offering IP will optimise the time freed up from preparing for the GCE ‘O’ Levels to stretch pupils and provide greater breadth in the academic and non-academic curriculum. However, these schools will continue to have school-based assessments to measure pupils’ progress.
IP is offered at the following secondary schools leading to their respective pre-university qualifications. In addition to S1, schools offering IP may take in students at other entry points, e.g. Secondary Three.
